  • Bodied



    I figured this might just be another white-boy hip-hop fantasy film and I guess it still might be. I mean, I'm a white male watching it and I guess it kind of hyped me. Yes, this is a rap film review that rhymes. Skip it if you want—just don't stereotype me.

    Digging a bit deeper, I think Bodied had some really interesting content. Comments on privilege, jokes at the expense of "WOKEr-than-thou" students, and even a few surprises with where…

    Viewing Note: Director’s Cut Blu-Ray (2014)

    Nightbreed is a heck of a lot of fun. Fun effects, a great cast of characters, and world-building that makes me regret not opting for the 2017 Cabal Cut. A friend recommended this one based on my love for Tank Girl (1995), and I think he nailed it. I really enjoyed this one.

  • Detachment



    Like the movie, this review is hard to get through.

    Some movies are like a storm. There is the calm before the storm, the first gusts, the eye, and then the final tempest rolls through. Like a storm, Detachment whisks you on a directionless emotional flight. When you've finally been put back on the ground, you are just as lost as you were in the air.

    This is a consequential movie that has left me breathless, broken and despondent. If I judge my film of the year based on emotional response, this one might just have it.
